What is a Medium Mattress?
A medium firm mattress is a middle ground between soft and firm mattresses, so it is perfect for those who prefer both comfort and support. Medium mattresses mould to your body to provide the soft comfort at night but also provide the support that your spine and back need for a great night’s sleep. If you like sleeping on a mattress that isn't too soft, or too firm, then a medium firm mattress is the best of both worlds.
Medium mattresses are great for those who sleep on their side, front or back, as these mattresses have more give than a firm mattress, ensuring your body is cushioned and your weight is distributed evenly. If you move frequently and switch sleeping positions, medium firm mattresses move with your body for ultimate comfort. Medium mattresses are also a great choice for couples as it is suitable for a variety of sleeping positions and no matter what comfort grade you both enjoy; medium mattresses are a perfect combination.

If you prefer a more cushioned feel and like to sink into your mattress you might lean towards a medium memory foam mattress, which moulds to your body shape. If you don't like to sink into your mattress, a medium pocket spring mattress is a better option for you, which has springs encased in pockets which respond to your body.
What is the Difference Between Medium Firm or a Firm Mattress?
This all boils down to the comfort levels, a medium mattress is soft to the touch and responds to your body. Meanwhile, a firm mattress has a more stable and even surface, so it won't sink as much when you lay down. Both medium and firm mattresses provide cushioning for your body and support for your spine. However, if you suffer from back pain or if you always sleep on your back, a firm mattress or a very firm mattress may be more suited to you as they give more support for your spine.
